eInstruction CPS Has Arrived
As I have said before, I rarely write about items that come with a price tag unless it offers exceptional value to the classroom. With that in mind, my eInstruction Classroom Performance System has arrived. For those not aware of these systems, sometimes just referred to as clickers, they are wireless handheld remote controls that allow students to not only give real time feedback to the content being covered, but also gain real time results. This type of assessment allows teachers to know whether what they’re covering is being digested, and whether they need to pause and go back or keep moving forward.
There’s obviously a lot more that can be done with this system(attendance, grading homework, voting, etc…) that will be covered as I use and experiment with them in my own classroom. Already using CPS? How are you using it in your classroom? Let your tips fly in the comments… they may make it into the next posts.
